All-New Ford GT Carbon Fibre Supercar


Just back from a test drive in the  rather good Ford Ranger Pick-up and recent launches of two of the best selling cars in the world made by Ford.  The New Mondeo and New Focus.

Performance it appears is now on the list for the global manufacturer and not just another hot hatch. That comes next week with the launch of the exciting Focus ST. No here we have it an Ultra High Performance Supercar. the All-New Ford GT.

The car is being built to celebrate a unique 50th anniversary when Ford GT race cars placed 1-2-3 at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans.  A supercar showcase for the highest powered ultra-efficient EcoBoost engine so far, a twin turbocharged V6 with over 600hp. Other features will be aided by the lightweight carbon fibre construction and unique performance aerodynamics.

This will be the extreme Ultra-high-performance supercar, infused with race-proven technology engineered to keep company with exotics when it goes into production in 2016.

Just one more thing, the GT is one of more than 12 new Ford Performance vehicles coming by 2020. It joins Focus RS, F-150 Raptor, Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT350R in the growing Ford Performance lineup and we haven’t even mentioned the All-New Mustang.

“As we at Ford drive innovation into every part of our business, it’s worth remembering that our first innovation as a company was not in a laboratory, but on the racetrack,” referring to Henry Ford’s win of a 1901 car race that inspired financial backers to invest in his company. “We are passionate about innovation through performance and creating vehicles that make people’s hearts pound.”Mark Fields, Ford president and CEO
